Reviewed 6 April 2012

We stayed here for one night on the way north and were upgraded into a larger double room with king bed and huge, well equipped bathroom by the very helpful owners. The room also had a pleasing outside access to a sheltered patio and the car park which assisted case unloading. Our end of the house was early 20th century with high ceilings and huge picture windows, all of which gave the accommodation and atmospheric colonial feel. The property has enormous potential, although the general decor could do with a sympathetic update in line with the age of the house. Swimming pool looked inviting but needed cleaning. Town not special with few places to eat at night but plenty to do in the day and good beaches nearby.

I visit family in Warkworth every year and after a horror night stay at Bridgehouse (down the hill) I found this place and return now every year. Always consistently great and in winter they have a very welcoming fire burning in the communal lounge - lovely.

We arrived in Warkworth early evening with nowhere to go. We tried one place but thought it looked grotty and then the man suggested we "go across the road". Sure enough, there was Warkworth Loge. A beautiful older homestead which is well maintained, spacious and best of all, clean.
There was only one studio room left which the owner let us have at a reduced rate given that it was Sunday night. The studio was really lovely. Spacious, warm and had everything you needed including a kitchen.
We would have chosen to stay in the large homestead if there had been a spare room simply because of the lovely atmosphere, huge lounge room, logburner etc. However we were very comfortable in the studio.
I was ill when we arrived so slept late the next day and we were offered a late check out at no extra charge.
We would thoroughly recommend staying at Warkworth Lodge. It looked a great place for the summer also with doors to a beautiful deck and pool area.
The one downside was that there was no free wi-fi.

Room Tip: I would choose to be in the homestead because of the atmosphere. The studio we had on the end had lo...

We spent one night at Warkworth Lodge when we met up with my husband's sister for dinner on a recent trip to NZ. The studio we stayed in was great, although the lounge with crackling fire inside the lodge looked very inviting too. Parking was easy, we felt most welcome, and the price was reasonable.
We'll definitely be back on our next visit to NZ!

I booked into this hotel for one night, staying with my parents and booked into one of the studio apartments.

We arrived early evening and the owner upgraded us to the family suite upstairs as there were three of us so thought we could use the extra room. The suite was amazing, taking up all the roof space and had an outside balcony which was great for sitting out on with a glass of wine from a neighbouring vineyard.

The owner couldn’t do enough to help us, providing local knowledge and helping out with the internet as the wifi wasn’t working the day we were there.

I would recommend staying here with a trip to the local vineyards, especially brick bay
